Meanwhile, Medvedev paid tribute to his opponent during his victory speech.

He apologised to the crowd for winning, detecting their preference for the world No 1, and made a bold statement on the GOAT debate, comparing Djokovic to Federer and Nadal.

“First of all, sorry for you the fans and Novak,” the new US Open champion said.

The 25-year-old also revealed it was his wedding anniversary, ending his speech with a cute message for his wife.

“Last but not least I want to finish my speech on a very sweet note. It is a certain anniversary for me and my wife today.

“During the tournament I couldn’t think of a present. After the semis I thought, if I lose in the final, I need to find a present fast. When I won, the only thing I thought was – well, if I lose, I will have no time to find a present. I love you Daria and thanks a lot.”
